When the news surfaced of Kim Kardashian being flour bombed at a red carpet event by an animal activist, the animal rights group PETA, claimed that they were not involved in the stunt, but it later came to light that the alleged flour bomber, Christine Cho, was indeed involved in PETA.
Khloe Kardashian, who has been a long time supporter of PETA, renounced the group this week, saying that PETA ‘lied’ about their involvement and that she can’t support a group that uses bullying tactics against her sister or anyone else as she is a big supporter of the anti-bullying movement as well as animal rights.
PETA responded to Khole’s resignation from the organization, saying that they are happy she will still refuse to wear fur, but that the message the flour bomber sent was still an important one to listen to.
Now Christina Cho’s sister, Michelle, has released a statement to E! News about her sister’s alleged involvement in the Kardashian flour attack. She said;
“I am not my sister’s keeper, but I love her and have seen her sacrifice a lot of herself as a terrific activist. We work in different ways to help stop animal suffering. It is Christina who got me into the movement to protect animals, and I’ll always be grateful to her for opening my eyes.”
PETA also spoke to the publication about Christina’s possible involvement and have said that they will support Cho and her actions against Kim. They said;
“If Christina Cho is the person who sprinkled flour on Kim Kardashian, we know Christina as a very kind, wonderful long time volunteer. At a reception at our LA office last month she was with a group who watched (a shocking video on fur trade) and was visibly shaken. We will support her totally.”
PETA has gone on to say that if Kim decides to take legal action against the flour bomber, that they will “defend the activist”.
